    3D Printing and Veloster Turbo Devil Fingers

    Do you own a Veloster Turbo? Do you have access to a 3D Printer? Ever wanted Devil Fingers but just couldn't justify that high price? For myself the answer was yes to all 3 questions so I took this opportunity to design some Devil Fingers on my own. There are 4 different designs here with an upper and lower finger designed to fit the curve and contour of the bumper of the Veloster Turbo.

    Now, what are you going to print them with so that they don't break/warp when they get warm?

    Why would they break or warp. That is an actual printed set in the photo above. I don't understand what you are asking.

    PLA when left outside tends to fade, and turns brittle after a year or so. Plus, it is designed to biodegrade anyway.

    Nice job! And as far as them deteriorating, you could always use these to make a mold and then produce them with an outdoor plastic of sorts...

    The sun is what will cause them to turn brittle and fade. I however designed these with the intention in mind to paint them. The Paint will protect them from the UV dgradation properties of the Sun. They could also be printed in ABS or PETG as well. As far as Biodegrade I have some super nice prints that have been going strong now for 3+

    I have a few more designs I came up with if anyone is interested. New badges for the front and back, new OBDII/Fuse cover that allows for a low profile Bluetooth OBDII reader to be left plugged in as well. I have included the links below

    Have a front badge all painted up. Not sure if I like the outcome, may try to improve apon it. Also decided to do some plastidip and put some racing stripes on the car. Also made a version of the V badge for the steering wheel as well
